Five hundred alternating swing clean and strict presses FOR TIME. Try and complete as many without putting the kettlebell down, but with good form and technique.
Full lockout upon each rep, no use of the legs, if you do not have the strength to press it, rest.
Recommended weight for this high volume is 40 to 50% of 1RM strict press.
- Full body lockout when pressing
- Delay the hip hinge upon the drop to minimise core work required
- Keep the bell close to the body upon drop and clean
- Actively press the legs into the ground upon the swing switch and clean
- Switch between hip hinge, squat and sportstyle (pendulum) to tax different muscle groups
- Transition to hook grip and bypass the palm to reduce friction on drop
- One straight path to destination on the press
- Pull the bell actively down after press and lockout

WARNING: you should have a moderate to high level of fitness. 500 reps is an insane amount to complete in one session, discontinue the challenge if you feel any pain. Although high reps is great to work on technique and bring your weaknesses to the surface, it’s not a time to start learning, in other words, you need to have some skills behind you already before you attempt this amount of reps. Word to your mom!
